Zeus has come home. He did not get along well with the other cat and dog in their household. B asked me if she could bring him back. I said yes, because I had told her from the get-go if it did not work out she could bring him back.
So now he is traveling back and forth to work with me. This situation is also not working out as he and my cats are not getting along. Maybe I should just put them together and let them fight it out, but I am not going to. I am trying to get them used to each other by being in seperate rooms and being able to smell each other. Not working. I have tried taking one of my cats in at a time to meet him. Not working.
I am looking for an older person who loves cats but has no other cat at this time who would love to have him. I have several people looking for a good home for him. Hoping to find someone soon.

Socks, socks, and more socks......

Actually I think there are only 3 pair of socks, but that is ok. Yep, I just looked and there are 3 pair.

The first pair was made back in December. I wasn't thrilled with the yarn color so my DIL was the lucky recipient. When I was knitting on them here at the store she kept telling me that she really liked the colors, so I made them bigger and gifted them to her. The second picture of the brown socks shows Zeus. He used to be the store mascot until he started peeing in the floor because he was mad at us for not being here 24/7. He now has a nice home when he has people around him more often.

This next pair is a real joy to wear. I forget what the yarn is, I'll look and try to post it this weekend. They are really soft and warm. The pattern was from Wendy Johnson's first toe up book. Can't remember the name of that either. The brain has left the body. (edited-- I just remembered it was Cherry Tree Hill yarn, don't remember the colorway, just that it was a limited edition one)

This last pair is made from KnitPicks, and I think it is Pallette. The pattern is a mix of January and February Sockamania socks. I knew that there was no way I would finish them in Jan so I did the heel in Jan pattern and the leg in Feb pattern. Smart of me, wasn't it?

This is me and 2 of my knitting helpers. The black one really is not happy. He does not want Munch on Mom's lap. I "belong" to Cole. I am surprised that he allowed Munch to stay there as long as he did. That is why I had Dale take the pic. Cole usually does not allow any of the other cats to sit on my lap long enough for a picture.

I also have my lace stole to take a pic of . I will have to have some help with that one. It is all blocked, ends woven in and ready to wear. Maybe I will get someone to take a pic of it on me. We will see.

I try to do better, honest I do. I post on here and have great intentions to post again soon. Time just somehow seems to get away from me.

I have some knitting that I need to take pics of and post. Maybe this weekend. Hubby keeps taking the camera. I need to get one of my own. *sigh*

Maybe more this weekend. Just wanted to post a shortie.

Y'all take care.
